  1. That’s one nice combination. We, however, wonder if your readers prefer navy, or gray, with their pink?

    1. Pretty much everything goes with pink!

    2. An artist might say the only color with which “everything goes” is green.
      Nature wouldn’t have it any other way.

    3. Brown does not 'go' with pink, ever, never, end of discussion. Actually, Robin's Egg Blue doesn't either, unless you went to Tufts, in which case it hardly matters because what you are undoubtedly be wearing will be quintessentially ugly in the first place. Green doesn't go with pink unless you are a 20-year old sorority sister an Auburn. Red never goes with pink, unless Muffy is having a Bloody Mary. Orange never, ever, please God, never goes with pink, unless you are from Missouri or some God-awful place like it. Black and pink only work if you are a post-Punk Goth who died her hair pink. Did I forget anything?

    4. Yes, you forgot the correct spelling for “dyed.” Merci beaucoup.

    5. Actually pink goes with all colors-
      it just depends on the carat size...

    6. Mister (Ms?) The Cirquitor, please, which is the most “God-awful place?”

    7. Dear Anon 11:10. No, mon cheri, I meant died. Think about it.

    8. The most “God-awful” place has a few nice beaches, but nothing that remotely compares to Outer Banks, Long Nook or Marconi. Inland it’s flat as a pancake. It’s covered with strip mall after strip mall after strip mall and it’s hot as they place where nobody wants to go when they’re number is up.

    9. Cirquitor....have you even been to Missouri?

      Delete
    10. Yes, I was once dispatched to Missouri for a business meeting. It was dull, uneventful and, understandably, utterly lacking in the slightest any aspect of interest in any category of life. Does that answer your question? I am sorry, I suppose, if you reside there. You will never understand anything you read here, or anywhere else, for that matter.

    11. The most distinctive reference to Missouri, I’ve heard, was pronounced over the loudspeaker at the 1968 Republican presidential convention. It was “37 fighting cats from old Mizzou cast their votes for Ted Agnew.”

    12. The Cirquitor, this showed up in my Instagram feed this morning and I immediately thought of you.

  2. That's my favorite color combo. I was lucky to be able to design and buy a pink and navy Boat & Tote before L.L.Bean yanked that wonderful design- your-own tote option offline.

  4. Muffy, where do you get your pink turtlenecks? I have scoured many sites and they rarely have a clear pink (with a blue undertone) as shown above. I'm also wondering if you could share some festive "at home" outfits from the past. I seem to remember a lovely pair of trousers with beautiful waistcoat that would be suitable for those of us who would like to dress up a little, but are not having visitors.

    1. This one is from L.L. Bean, their Pima Cotton Turtleneck in Azalea, though many sizes are now sold out.

  6. Plead guilty as charged wearing 100 % wool navy button down with white polo popped collar while hunting this weekend. Yep, will wear an ancient aquamarine polo popped underneath a pink J Press OCBD. Of course, I am from the South & an eccentric.

  7. You're popping your collars cause your daddy got dollars. (That is Preppy Rap).

    1. LOL,I am the daddy, old school, & not a part of mainstream culture.

    2. And if you are the daddy, old school, as am I, I surmise your collar is popped because it is easier, a shortcut remembered from school days (or was it daze?).

    4. Well, my comrade in arms, Mr. Irvine weighs in to my rescue. Daze aka sore hair.

    5. Muffy, these pearls, your swine. It't too much for me. Your disciples are fools, I will be going away for a while now..Take are and buy an iron, for Christ's sake.

    6. The prep ethos is well established and delightful to its adherents. Why would anyone seek out this site if they dislike it? Also, Muffy, I like the pearls, and while I love to iron I prefer my khakis unironed. If an occasion calls for a crease, it call for worsteds or flannels.. Lastly, yesterday I wore light brown five pocket cords from Bean, my pick hook belt from Leather Man, sockless Maliseets, and, just to see what would happen, an ancient pink OCBD. I am in Texas, and it was too warm to wear it over a polo with a lazily popped collar. The world continued to turn, my shirt fetched a compliment (so did the belt), and my conviction was reinforced that pink indeed goes with everything and brightens the world with much needed eclat.

  8. It suits you, ma'am :)

    I have one navy sweater at present, a merino V-neck from Ansett I layer over my thin rib turtlenecks and skivvies.
